Tranquil Night

Pann Kyi

Myanmar

 

Pann Kyi (b.1983) expresses his deep love for nature and his country through his paintings. He does not paint merely from being inspired by the land, rather he paints inwardly, painting his own interpretation and perspective of the world. Pann Kyi loves quiet, empty spaces that bespeak solitude and peace. He believes that sometimes people hold memories of places they visit and a lot of the emotions they experience are deeply personal and tend to be appreciated in silence.

 

Pann Kyi's compositions provide us with a quiet place, a sanctuary where we can reflect inwards. His works represent an ability to find peace and contentment, even when the leaves change colour.

 

Andrey Vrady

Russia


Andrey Vrady has stepped out into the digital unknown by borrowing a relatively simple but powerful idea found in centuries of Islamic art: begin with a straightforward geometric form and multiply it out into a kaleidoscope of complex ornamental patterns. But instead of using delicate hand painted flowers or lattices of carved lines as his raw material, Vrady uses snapshots of everyday city streets and parks, employing mirroring and refraction to make cars, buses, crosswalks, snowy trees, and airplanes in flight into complicated arabesques.


While most of the works are rigidly symmetrical, a few take the copying of geometries further into lacy whorls that spin off like Persian fractals, expanding into new dimensions.
